My Syrian friend sent me a link to a web site that shows pictures of little kids in Lebanon having been blown up. Terrible pictures, ugly and unpleasant, not for the squeamish.
This is terrible, for a little kid to be blown up.
But the reason for them having been blown up? Not the reason the web site says. See, just like the Palestinian fighters shoot with kids all around them, or the anti-Iraq forces who grab women and children as shielding while they shoot with impunity, or the people who use ambulances as troop carriers, Hezbollah has their human shields in Lebanon. As does Iraq and Syria have their shielding by fighting wars by proxy.Â This illuminating LGF post has a related theme, too–to have the little kids grow up to strap on the ol’ Semtex, you gotta get them to hate early.
I certainly don’t remember my friend sending me links to shocking websites when buses got blown up, or Mike’s Place got blown up, or any of the decades of innocents getting blown up a couple of dozen miles south.
I wonder if there’s a reason for that.
